In this course, you will gain knowledge about the various SD-WAN architectures, core features, and why we need it. SD-WAN virtualizes the WAN and makes it more agile to be in tune with today's application requirements.
In this course, The SD-WAN Architectures: The Big Picture, you will be guided through the problems with the existing WAN and what challenges it has when supporting today's environment. First, you will learn what SD-WAN is, it’s components, and how it works.
Next, you will discover the functions of SD-WAN and the advantages it can bring to your organization. Finally, you will explore the various SD-WAN architectures. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge needed to talk confidently about SD-WAN and fully understand the options/features available to you.
Course Overview [Music] Hi everyone. My name is Matt Conran from Network Insight. Welcome to the course, SD-WAN Architectures: The Big Picture. I'm a network and security architect based out of Ireland. SD-WAN is a disruptive technology that is revolutionizing the way we manage and operate the wide area network. This course will introduce you to the concepts of SD-WAN, core features, and the various SD-WAN architectures with no prior experience with SD-WAN required. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the challenge with the current WAN and some of the environmental changes that are forcing us to rethink the WAN architecture, the SD-WAN overlay and per application topologies, the various path conditioning and remediation options. Also, the SD-WAN architectures available, either on-premise or in the cloud. By the end of the course, you will have a solid understanding of SD-WAN, its core features, and be able to start talking to the various SD-WAN vendors about their solutions and features available. I hope you will join me in this journey to learn SD-WAN with the SD-WAN Architectures: The Big Picture course, at Pluralsight.
